To celebrate Ms. Kahlo’s 109th birthday, which is July 6, there will be festivities including cake, crafts, coloring, art by the Phoenix Fridas, mariachi music by Mariachi Pasion, dance performances and free goodie bags to the first 25 Frida look-a-likes to attend with museum admission, according to a press release.

Scheduled activities:

  • 11 a.m.-2 p.m.   The sounds of Mariachi Pasión–an all-female mariachi group;
  •  2:30 p.m.    Ballet Folklórico Ollin Yoliztli will dance in the Steele Auditorium;

In addition to a spoken-word presentation about the life and works of Frida Kahlo, there will be a selfie-booth with props available for pictures in homage to the painter who “single-handedly created the selfie trend,” the release said.
